This programmable alternator regulator can be used with all 12 volt P Type externally regulated alternators. It can be programmed for battery type including lead acid, gel and AGM batteries. It provides a three stage charge with bulk, absorption and float settings as well as a soft start to allow the engine to get up to speed on starting.  The digital display gives an indication of the stage of the program, the target and measured voltages and can be used for programming and troubleshooting.
There is a Belt Load Manager section to the program which can be adjusted if the alternator is to be used with a less than optimal drive belt.  This regulator can take optional battery and alternator temperature sensors.  The ARS5-H has some limitations on it field current and so is only suitable for a single alternator and is not recommended for the AT series alternators.  For those applications we recommend the Max Charge which has a more powerful field current output.  The model sold here, the ARS5, does not come with a wiring harness. If you wish to purchase a new unit with wiring harness the part number is ARS5-H.

Tech Tip

When an alternator temperature sensor is used with an ARS5 regulator the output of the alternator is reduced by 50% when it gets too hot and the full output is restored when it cools off.  With the MC614 regulator the operation is more sophisticated and the output is adjusted incrementally to be the maximum possible while keeping the alternator within its allowed temperature.
